* AnachronismStew: The show is set in [[TheNew10s the 10's]], having episodes set in 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2017, and cell phones appearing recently. However, most of the technology is from [[The90s the 90s]] (like computers, video-games, TVs and video tapes). Flat screen computers or TVs aren't seen in the show and apparently not sold in Elmore.

* LethalKlutz: All the Wattersons to varying degrees, with Richard at the top of the heap; he can bring the whole ''universe'' to an end just by [[https://youtu.be/BzXpvmvhZkQ delivering a pizza.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RealityBreakingParadox: Richard isn't just unemployed because he's terminally lazy and generally unemployable. Apparently, giving him a job is ''so'' contrary to the natural order it can [[https://youtu.be/BzXpvmvhZkQ tear the very fabric of reality apart.]]

* MamaBear: Nicole, full stop. For example, when she thought Gumball was being bullied by Tina, she attempted to clear things up with her father...who just happens to be a fully-grown T-Rex. When calm discussion didn't work she took him on with her bare hands and ''won.''

* DarkerAndEdgier / DenserAndWackier: Manages to be both simultaneously. Season 1 took fairly realistic, lighthearted SliceOfLife plots and contrasted them with the surreal, wacky world of the show. From season 2 onwards, however, the humor got much darker, [[Radar/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball raunchier]], and less subdued, Gumball TookALevelInJerkass, and an actual story arc involving a genuinely dangerous villain and the idea that [[spoiler: the universe is sentient and controlling the world]] emerged. At the same time, however, the episode plots became increasingly surreal and nonsensical, [[NoFourthWall the fourth wall started to disappear,]] and [[BizarroEpisode Bizarro Episodes]] started to become the norm. The end result of this is the show [[TropesAreTools becoming far funnier.]]

* BlackComedyBurst: For a series which takes place in a brightly-colored, whimsical world were anything can happen, a lot of the humor and situations in episodes (particularly after season one) are hilarious because of how sick, cynical, or loaded with unfortunate implications they are (but not in such a way that it becomes ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''-esque).
